For a while, I’ve planned a photo shoot in Old Town, Alexandria to capture the fall colors. I finally visited Old Town, but I’m afraid I was late to the color show. Many leaves were still hanging on trees but their colors were faded. Nevertheless, I found some interesting subjects.
Without much brilliant foliage to focus on, I resorted to my typical imagery instincts. I looked for restaurants, historic homes, and churches that stimulated interest through texture, color, and contrast. Those three parameters are typically what catch my eye. Also, dogs.
I like the orange/blue contrast–complimentary colors of course.

St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Old Town Alexandria. I like the shadows and the cream, rather than pure white, shade of the church structure. Cream and blue create a soft texture that contrasts nicely with the shadow.
